Shown on The Kate's BIG Screen!
One of Broadway's most classic and beloved tales, 42nd Street, comes
to the cinema screens in the largest-ever production of the breathtaking
musical. The musical, set in 1933, tells the story of Peggy Sawyer, a
talented young performer with stars in her eyes who gets her big break
on Broadway.Peggy arrives to New York City from her hometown of
Allentown, Pennsylvania and her talent catches the eye of legendary
Broadway director Julian Marsh. She gets a spot in the chorus of the
musical-within-the-musical, Pretty Lady. Dorothy Brock, the classic
Broadway diva and star of the show, takes a dislike to the new girl.
When Dorothy is injured, Pretty Lady looks like it will have to close,
unless a new girl talented enough to lead the show can be found --someone
like Peggy Sawyer!)Filmed in 2018 at London's Theatre Royal the
production is directed by the original author of the show, Mark Bramble.
This eye-watering extravaganza is full of crowd-pleasing tap dances,
popular musical theatre standards ("Lullaby of Broadway", "We're in the
Money (the gold digger's song), "42ndStreet" and more), and
show-stopping ensemble production numbers. from Jan Versweyveld, costume
design by An D'Huys and music from double Mercury Prize-winner PJ
Harvey, alongside Tom Gibbons' sound design. Casting is by Julia Horan
